DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, the Supreme Court did not improvidently exercise its discretion in restricting the scope of his cross-examination of the People's witnesses at the suppression hearing (see People v Francisco, 44 AD3d 870, 870-871; People v Savignon, 15 AD3d 289; People v McGlothin, 6 AD3d 462, 463).
SKELOS, J. P., FLORIO, HALL and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
